I have a macro on MS Access 2007 that outputs to a file name....I receive an error when I try to add the timestamp to the file name.
 MS Access cant save the output data to the file you selected


Outputto    "P:\MAK Setup and documentation\MAK Reports\UDA_MAK\prn_pain\hlw_" & Format(Now(), "yyyymmddHHnnss") & ".xls"

you can not use a variable inside the macro command..

use a vba function and call the function in your macro with

RunCode



Function Name  YourFunctionName()



create a  function in a Regular module

Function YourFunctionName()
' your export code here

End function

That would require a new vba code for each and every report that has a different name then?

Ive done this before I believe
